Californians, Pay Attention!

How Many Times Do We Need to Say, 'Check NOTAMS?'

The FAA's Donn Walker confirmed what we had heard. President Bush was in California Friday, scooping up some cash; that, of course, meant that normal flying had to follow some additional rules. those rules, interestingly enough, are published in NOtice(s) To AirMen (NOTAMs).

Walker confirmed: "We had a couple busted TFRs. On Friday, we had two TFRs related to the President's visit. The first was Friday morning through early afternoon, near San Francisco; Then, from mid-afternoon to around 9PM, we had another one here. There were some violations of both; two in the San Francisco area; five near LA."

If you're on this list, please remember to tell your friends who are still flying, to check their NOTAMs before every flight. Thanks!

  1. Hughes OH58 entered TFR at 2,100 feet 8 miles north of Hayward at 1130.
  2. Cessna 152 entered TFR at 3,500 feet 10 miles north of San Jose at 1300.
  3. Gulfstream AC90 entered TFR at 6,500 feet 20 miles west northwest of Pomona at 1405.
  4. Cessna 182 entered TFR at 6,000 feet 5 miles northeast of Torrance at 1415.
  5. Cessna 182 entered TFR at unknown altitude 3 miles west northwest of Los Angeles at 1610.
  6. Piper PA-28 entered TFR at unknown altitude 7 miles west northwest of Los Angeles at 1615.
  7. Cessna 185 entered TFR at 12,500 feet 6 miles southeast of Los Alamitos at 1700.

We understood from an ANN News-Spy that some poor slob had rearview mirrors full of F-15s. Lt Cdr. Curtiss Jenkins of NORAD, however, said there were no scrambles on Friday, related to the TFRs.
